Where converts to Christianity face persecution, isolation, or even death as the price for their faith. “Reema Goode” and her family are Christians working in a closed Middle Eastern country w ...more

I am always encouraged to read about fellow missionaries especially those working amongst Muslim communities. The author and her family clearly have a heart to share the Gospel to these people and are actively seeking to do that day in and day out. They live and work in the community they are ministering to having left their home in the USA to do so. They use "friendship- evangelism" as their main method of witness. I am happy to read of their success in terms of there being many "seekers" and p ...more

The good is a irrepressible love for the gospel and the Muslim people. The author bubbles with both and the desire to love her neighbor. There are wonderful stories told within this very easy to read book and I found myself with tears in my eyes as I read each of them. I greatly delighted in hearing how so many of the people desired to hear or read the Scriptures themselves.

The "not-so-good" is something that I don't want to call "bad." Though I have also read and heard of many Muslims who have

From the time I was a little boy, I remember being fascinated with missionary stories. I'd find the country on a map and visualize myself going to that distant land with the Gospel. Africa, South America, Asia -- all were equally enticing destinations. On-screen slide projectors introduced me to the mud huts, shacks and cardboard cities of extreme povery, to exotic animals, tropical paradises and beautiful vistas, and most of all, to the faces of people who need Christ. In my background, however ...more

Especially since 9/11 there has been a resurgence of interest in Islam and the Muslim world among Americans. For American Christians there is an interest in promoting Christianity in such lands. Yet the challenges seem insurmountable: while Muslims certainly appreciate the freedom of religion and freedom of expression that exists in the West, they do not provide such freedom in their own lands. While some countries tolerate Christians and others to practice their religion, they still demand a pa ...more

An inspiring book about the authors adventures with Muslims. I laughed, I cried, it's great to see such a humorous account of a Christian missionary in the midst of the Islamic world. It seems to quickly place you in the middle of her neighourhood and friends.
I may have to read it a few more times - Just for fun.

I don't like to give out 5 stars very often. But this was incredible. I only wish it was 500 pages longer.

This book changed my life. It tells true stories of situations and places similar to what I'm going into. A number of times, even while reading this book in public places, I wept. God is moving. I wish everyone in my life would read it to understand better why I do what I do.

This book is about the experiences of Reema Goode and her husband as Christian missionaries in an Arab nation. In it she tells about a people whom God loves and who are not the horrid caricatures all too often made of Arab Muslims by recent events. It was a blessing reading of the wonderful ways in which the Gospel has successfully led many Muslims to Jesus Christ via their ministry and via other incredible means. Because of Islamist terrorism, some Christians have bought into the fear and preju ...more

It took some time to decide what rating to give this book. At times the enthusiasm of the writer is infectious, especially in the last chapter, because it is good to see people being freed from the arduous restrictions that those who call themselves Muslim by and large (it seems to me) submit to. But I have many objections, and I got quite angry while reading it at times. I no longer call myself a Christian, preferring anyway not to take on any label, but I haven't given up on Jesus of Nazareth ...more

If you wonder what God is up to in Muslim nations and the 10/40 window this is a good book to begin with.

Here missionary Reema Goode gives an account of her family's exciting experiences while living and sharing the gospel with people in the Muslim nation in which they serve. Although the book is relatively short, it has a decent amount of miraculous stories of answered prayers and stunning conversions. This book shows that you don't have to be an expert to be an effective missionary. Training i

This book was a quick and easy read. It flowed really well and was easy to follow along. It is amateur writing at best, but I felt like I could hear her voice telling a story as I read along. I am a Christian myself, and having said that, I have two things to say about this book, and the family it represents. I do not agree with their mission. But I also find them very very brave for doing what they believe in. I also think if you take the religion aspect out of it, it could be a book of goodwil ...more

Which None Can Shut by author Rheema Goode is an inspiring collection of stories from her mission field in the Muslim world.

Rheema and her husband currently live in a country where converting to Christianity is a punishable crime. Her neighbours are all Muslim and both her husband Mike and herself, put their lives at risk everyday to preach the gospel. The stories in this book will inspire you to continue to pray for Muslims everywhere who have not yet heard the gospel and are seeking to know t

Wonderfully encouraging stories of how the Holy Spirit is working in the Mideast!
The phrase "10/40 window" began in 1990. That same year the US invaded Iraq. Knowledge of the Muslim world exploded...and prayers began! More Muslims have become Christians since 1990 than in the past 2000 years.

This short book was areal thrill for me to read. Seeing all the terrorism going on today, I was so gratified as a Christian to see the brave souls who are going to Muslim countries, risking their lives to spread the Word of the Bible. What a wonderful way to see how God is opening doors in these countries and how many are turning away from terrorism and to Jesus. The bravery of these people who go as medical or educators and hide their missionary work from the police at a risk of their own lives ...more

This is a wonderful testimony to the evangelistic work with the Muslim community in their culture. These missionaries show a great understanding of how much the Muslims fear that they give up to become a Christian. It affects their understanding of life! Also, it is uplifting to see that prayer is essential in reaching the followers of Islam--and the number of Muslims turning to Christ continues to grow.

Great read... an inside look at the Muslim world from a vantage point of God's love and truth. The stories are encouraging snapshots of God at work and reveal Him again as the God who calls us into personal relationship with Him. The book also exhibits a genuine love & respect for Muslims, too often lacking from Christian evangelistic efforts.

I was really encouraged by this week and pleased to hear how God is moving around the world. Sometimes we don't get to hear the amazing things God is doing and get discouraged by the news. This is a great reminder that God is sovereign and his will is done even in closed countries that are opposed to the gospel.

An easy, engaging read. Filled with example after example of God's power and work in the Muslim world and in the lives and hearts of believers living there. Clear evidence that my God is alive, able, and active! Encouraging from start to finish.

An inspiring read by a couple living in the Arab world showing their gentle and friendly way of relating to their Arab neighbours. Wonderful to see how God is moving among Muslims to create interest in Isa, the Messiah.

Excellent, rather easy read. It talks of how God has been so faithful to the ministry He called Reema and her husband Mike to in ministering to Muslims of the Arab Peninsula. Some amazing stories indeed.

Read this book! You will be encouraged and blessed. A prophetic word about Muslims was given to a friend: "They will know that I love them, and at the appointed time, I will open their hearts."

Very quick read. Very interesting. So exciting to hear how God is moving in a place that we might not "see" Him moving.
